for the love of cats
Well, I took Milo to the vet's Saturday for his yearly shots. It literally scared the crap right out of him. :( Broke my heart. Very disappointed in my vet. She claimed she cleaned him up real good but, that wasn't the case. I was very upset with this. Milo was so scared he growled and tried to attack even me! Once I got him home I tried my best to bathe him myself but, had to yell at the hubby to come help. Poor baby had poo starting to matte in his tail. I had to get him cleaned up. He was not a happy camper at all Saturday! ... He ended up vomiting 3 times after that. Not sure if that had to do with his shots or just being way too stressed with his vet visit, car ride, and a bath. So, while I was bathing him I promised him that he NEVER EVER, EVER has to go back to the vet again! Good news though, he is in a good clean bill of health! ... Just wish he wasn't so mad at me Saturday and Sunday. I am however glad he was starting to purr again and wanting to play with me this morning. :) ... Fingers crossed for a good evening later.
A friend of mine suggested sedation before taking him to the vet again. I don't know if I want to do that. Has anyone ever had to do this? ... I know he really does need to keep up to date on his shots. But, I hate to see him so scared like that.
Milo has also been having an odd reaction to the flea medication Revolution. So, the vet is going to see how the medication Advantage works for him. He doesn't have fleas so, I don't think I will worry about that right now. Does anyone know of any home remedies that are not harmful for flea protection?
